After seeing the quilt I made for my sister, my sister-in-law requested one for her soon to be born baby girl. I started on the quilt BEFORE the baby was born... but didn't finish it in time :(
I finally got it done and will deliver it during our Thanksgiving visit. (although I have this post scheduled to post AFTER I give it to her!)
I used the "Vintage Baby Quilt" pattern again which I love!
The quilt pattern has rows of squares in a 14x14 pattern, and I had 14 different colors/designs of fabric for the squares. This made it perfect for laying out the squares without having to repeat any pattern in a row. I thought I could do this myself, but after I was 90% done laying out the squares, realized that I messed up somewhere and couldn't fit the last few squares in their rows without there being a duplicate pattern in the same row. I know I could have left it, but I wanted it to be perfect...
SO I turned to Suduko!
I found this Sudoku Site and printed out a 14x14 finished puzzle.
Then labeled my fabric.
To correspond with each letter in the puzzle
It made the process MUCH easier!
I crossed out each row as I laid them down
All done with the layout!
On the picture above there is a huge white strip on the right because the backing wasn't as big as the white cotton!
Luckily it just fit!!
And the finished quilt!!
and the binding.
I love the colors in this quilt and I know my sister-in-law will love it too!
